CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Profusely illustrated with photographs, computer renderings and architectural
drawings, "Performing Architecture" explores fifty of today's finest
performance spaces, as well as recently refurbished, restored and transformed
buildings. A brief introduction traces the post-war development of theatre and
concert hall design, and sets out the circumstances today that have led to such
a rich provision for performance. Buildings featured range from Frank Gehry's
landmark Disney Opera House in Los Angeles to the quieter Unicorn Theatre for
Children in London; and from the Tenerife Opera House by Santiago Calatrava to
the Guangzhou Opera House, China, by Zaha Hadid. A celebratory study, this book
showcases some of the most exhilarating buildings of our time.
